Hong Kong Poems in English and Chinese
Hong Kong Poems in English and Chinese by Andrew Parkin
Book Description"Hong Kong Poems" is the first-ever collection of poems about Hong Kong published in parallel English and Chinese texts. Appearing in the year when Hong Kong returned to Chinese sovereignty, this collection offers insights into what Hong Kong was and is on the edge of becoming. The juxtaposition of an English-Canadian poet and a Chinese-Canadian poet allows the reader to enter a dialogue about Asian modernity, a state of being that the Hong Kong critic Ackbar Abbas has called "postculture."
